On Saturday, October 5th, the Third Annual All Years Morrisville High School Reunion took place at Williamson Park in Morrisville.
The event organizers, Wanda Cummings Kartal (class of ‘82) and Suzanne Albanese Gavella (class of ‘79) work throughout the year starting with a zero budget, and pull in donations from local businesses, friends and alumni and secure food vendors who give back a certain portion of their net sales towards the fundraising.
The event is free and usually draws in graduates from the 1930’s through current day. All fundraising was done through the sale of Chinese auction tickets, 50/50 tickets, t-shirts, pound cake pre-orders, pizza slices and pint glass sales (all donated by MHS alumni or local businesses).
The All Years Reunion started three years ago when classmates started to reunite on Facebook and wanted to get together to reminisce. Suzanne and Wanda created the event and decided while they were together they should see what they could raise for their alma mater. The attendance has increased from 125 (first year) to over 320 this year, as well as money raised from $350 to over $2200 in 2013!
All money goes back to MHS to help maintain small programs and/or equipment. The next event is scheduled for October 4th, 2014 at Williamson Park, Morrisville from noon to dusk. Join their mailing list by contacting the committee at email@example.com.
